Waterstreet Glassworks

This West Michigan glass school opened last year, but they just now got their website going:

PO Box 161
Benton Harbor, MI 49023

Main Office Number: (269) 925-5555

I have studied under Jerry, the founder, at Ox-Bow and can recommend him completely. He has a special talent for meeting students at their own level, whether scared beginner or experienced glass student. Besides his passion for working glass himself, he has a true passion for teaching glass.

I have visited the Waterstreet facility and think it's great. It's got a very open floor plan, a catwalk for observers, two benches, and a gallery space. If I lived in West Michigan, I'd be there a lot, either renting or possibly tech'ing.

In addition to offhand, they offer torch classes - at least one of the instructors there, Jessica Bohus ( http://www.blueroanstudio.com/ ) is a great artist.
